Marking your pallets’ lead boards is an essential means of communicating information about the pallet or the timber from which it is constructed. Many manufacturers will mark their pallets with an electric brander or other pallet branding tool

This traditional method of producing pallet markings is used by many pallet manufacturers to stamp their pallets with logos, lot codes, IPPC compliance, and any other information. However, this application is labor-intensive, time-consuming, and potentially dangerous due to the hot iron.

A much better alternative to manual pallet branding is the implementation of a printing application. Such an application provides manufacturers with the ability to avoid many direct labor costs, eliminate potential injuries from the heated brander, and increase speed and throughput in the pallet marking process.

The FoxJet ProSeries 384e is an industry-leading pallet-marking solution (see Figure 2)

With the ability to print small images and up to 14 lines of text at high resolutions, this powerful printhead produces a clean, crisp marking every time.

Additionally, the higher the volume, the higher the realized savings after switching to this alternative to expensive pallet branding.
